  • THE STORY OF TAMAR - in Reply on 2 Samuel 13:20
    2 Samuel 13

    David loved God, loved his family and loved his country. He was vulnerable through his deep love for all.

    Amnon had a dirty old uncle encourage him to pursue Tamar (Absalom's sister). The uncle tells him what to do. Tamar tried to reason with him that as half sister, David might give her as a wife. Amnon only wanted what he'd been whipped into a frenzy for. After the rape, he didn't want anything to do with her. Nobody told David about it. David did not know what was going on, in his own household but he found out. He was angry at Absalom.

    Tamar went to live in Absalom's house; in seclusion. Absalom simmered in anger 2 years before he dealt with Amnon.

    Tamar is shown in David's genealogy; which is unusual.

    Absalom was married? It's recorded he had 3 sons that must have died at birth because they are not in the genealogy. He had 1 daughter and he named her Tamar. She was a woman of fair countenance like her Aunt Tamar. I don't know how long she lived.

    Absalom did many many evil things. He raped all of his fathers concubines in full sight of town; and more. 2 Samuel 15

    Abdalom died hanging in a tree by his long beautiful dreadlocks. Joab is fetched and he stabs Absalom in the heart with 3 arrows; the troops with him smote and slew him afterwards.

    To conclude: the better question is what happened to Absalom's 1 daughter, that he named Tamar. Females were not in genealogies as a rule.

    I think David's daughter Tamar died of a broken messed up life. I think In honor of her suffering, he named his daughter Tamar, also. There is no record of the end of her life.

    Galatians 3:13 says, CURSED is any who dies by hanging on a tree. Absalom died on a tree. Judas died on a tree. Jesus died on a tree so that WE ALL MAY LIVE ETERNALLY.

    He was made a curse for our sakes.

    David's psalms represent a lot of heartache over his life, his kids, his choices. He loved large and suffered much.

    Is it true that one can become possessed by an evil spirit?.
  • Portia on Leviticus 20
    You're right. God has not changed in any way. But h sent His son to die, and to shed His blood for our sins. Jesus made the difference. All these things were written for our learning, though we will not literally, be stoned. Yet God's laws he in Leviticus is teaching us how we should live, today even. In your natural innate, God-given mind, you would not have sex with your sister or brother. His laws still stand in such things mentioned. We must discipline ourselves to achieve balance by bringing all our faculties and power under control. The Lord uses a disciplined mind to think clearly and understand His Word and present truth effectively to the world. Why be self-discipline? See 2 Timothy 2:15: Be diligent to approve yourself to God. Let us practice self-discipline. It will be obedience to God. Instead of doing what the people in the world do, we ought to be exposing their evil. Study God's word, ask for wisdom from above.
  • James Morgan on Matthew 11:28
    The Bible verse is seemingly questionable. Firstly, the Lord said "Come to me, those who are heavy laden and weary. And I shall give you rest". He went on to say, "Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light". For someone who is heavy laden and again given a yoke (as mentioned above) I think it is unfathomable. You already have burden and to be given another yoke (will surely) increase burden to become unbearable. Is it His miraculous ways that He is implying here or just juggling with words? Can someone please throw more light on my curiosity?

    Chris,

    I read verses such as 2 Peter 3:17 which directly states

    "Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things BEFORE, BEWARE lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, FALL from your own stedfastness."

    And, to use your verse pointed out; "Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling" (Philippians 2:12): Why would Paul say this to his followers if he did not mean it?

    So then; "Let us "Study to show ourselves approved unto God (2 Timothy 2:15) and "LABOUR therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief" (Hebrews 4:11).

    The clothes that we wear in heaven can be seen from Revelation 19:8; as the clothes (white robes that WE have washed) put on there are woven from the righteous acts we perform here on earth.

    My point concerning death is simply that when we die our body returns to dust and our spirit returns to God. I don't believe that anyone in heaven that is with the Father (on the right side of the gulf) is walking around without any garments on.

    If we believe Christ rose, then so does everyone else that dies.

    Matthew 27:52-53 was a onetime event to show to all living at that time that Christ defeated death (look at 1 Corinthians 15:54-55, Hebrews 2:14).

    Death is another name used for Satan.

    what became of Tamar, what does she remained desolate in her brother absalom's house...did she ever get married or had children?
  • John g mullen on Titus 2:11
    Titus 2:11-14 NKJV

    For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.

    i am of the mind that because of this verse no one needs to go to an eternal hell. i went to new tribes mission with the belief that if the "little brown man in the jungle" did not hear and acceot Christ he'd go straight to hell. well this verse leads me to believe that when the little brown man dies and stands before God. God will ask him if he wants to join Him or go into eternal punishment. this,my theory, let's man off the hook as far as evangelizing the world. i mean who would choose eternal damnation? what think ye?

  • Ken Hatley on Luke 17:28
    Thank you, I do have a couple of questions regarding end time prophecies.

    1. What is the Book, Chapter and verse that states " They will be buying and selling" referring to the end times.

    2. Where are the scriptures about perversion and homosexuality Lust. There is something in the Bible I have read that said something about make up or painting there faces as the heathen do. I can't remember the verbage exactly but it that is what it referred to.

    Thank You and God Bless You for your wonderful service and information.

  • Portia Kirkland on Leviticus 15
    Although Matthew Henry"s commentary is exactly correct, we all still have a desire to learn and to know about being ceremonially clean or unclean. For these things, after all, are written for our admonition/our learning, and not for nothing. I would advise that you continue, also, to read Matthew"s commentary that you may gain knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. Also, there are others, including Charles Spurgeon, C.S. Lewis, and R.C. Sproul. Since these men are, what I call, the modern apostles of our day, you may as well find yourselves a good book on "Reformed Theology". There is one titled, "What is Reformed Theology"? You can reference many others. Theology matters, following the apost
  • Evelyn Pearson on Acts 7:55
    I know that KJV is God's preserved word perfect. So I'm trying to understand this verse Acts 7:55. It says Jesus is at God's right hand but I honestly was thinking Jesus is Lord thy God cause in 1 John 5:7 kjv it says they are as one. Can you explain this to me so I can explain it to others as well, because this was a questions that others have asked me as well. And he has to be God Says he was God manifest in the flesh as well.
  • John g mullen on Titus 2:11

  • Mishael - in Reply on Leviticus 18:22
    All I can add is, the same people that eat curly fries smothered in processed cheese, onions, jalapeo peppers and hot dog chili

    will probably buy those books.

    I've always believed we should ask the Lord what He thinks? One of the good ones was Healing The Sick by TL Osborne. I actually got healed reading a couple of chapters! If the Lord says it's useful I do not judge the writer.

    He had to sit on me many times to squash that judgmental attitude out of me :/

    The 17th and 18th verses of this Psalm have greatly ministered to my soul.

    Our God is truly faithful !!
  • Mishael on Knowledge of the HOLY - in Reply on Ezekiel 9
    Proverbs 4

    Surely I am more brutish than any man, and have not the understanding of a man.

    I neither learned wisdom, nor have the KNOWLEDGE OF THE HOLY.

    Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth?

    what is HIS name, and what is HIS SON'S name, if thou canst tell?

    Comment: First time I ran across this, I knew I needed to learn much more than I was. I want to know what the knowledge of the Holy is.
  • WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO ABOUT JESUS - in Reply on Psalms 1
    God is not going to bring us to himself with any kind of gimmick.

    He sent HIS WORD. He sent Jesus the Son of God. Through Jesus's death on the Cross and Resurrection 3 days later. Jesus was born through a virgin. Babies have their Fathers blood type; not the mothers blood type. His blood was PURE from the sin of humankind. That's why His blood was powerful enough to save and heal the whole world....(past, present, future). IF THEY BELIEVE.

    Every Walmart in America sells Bibles. The Bible is how we learn WHO Jesus is. Why does HE love us?

    If you go into it with a "what can Jesus do for me? Can he make me rich? Make me look like King David? You're not going to feel the Love.

    We give Jesus OUR SINFUL lives and receive HIS SINLESS life. Good trade? It cost Him everything!! He suffered huge, and He did it for YOU.

    You should watch the movie that Mel Gibson made called: THE PASSION. It is so realistic; I felt sick, I cried for days.

    That's just a movie. Jesus lived that; he died; He was resurrected!! He is alive!

    He sees you right now, reading this.

    As soon as you say YES, your life will be changed.

    This website has different helps to study with. You may want to look over the one that asks if you seek salvation. Good to know what it's all about.

    He's coming back soon so don't wait too long to make a decision. He's alive. He's closer than you can imagine.

    I pray with all my heart that you would find Jesus the same way I did.

    2. Concerning those who have died in Christ: I believe that the spirit & soul returns to God upon death; even as Paul longed for, "to be absent in the body is to be present with the Lord" (2 Corinthians 5:8). What the departed believers wear in Heaven is not revealed, though Paul refers to this somewhat in 2 Cor 5:1-4, when "our earthly tabernacle will be dissolved & we earnestly desire to be clothed upon with our house in Heaven" seems to refer to some type of covering or form.

    I agree with you, that 1 Cor 15:50 ff aligns with the matter Paul was dealing with in verse 12, viz the resurrection of the dead. However, you state later: "The dead are not in a hole in the Ground, they are with the Father the moment they pass". Apologies, I'm confused by what you're saying here. Are you suggesting that at Jesus' Coming, that there will be no 'grave opening' for the remains of the dead saints to rise up (& go ahead of) the living saints? If so, then who are the "dead in Christ rising first" at the coming of Christ (v16)? I would think that in the normal reading of verses 16 & 17, we see three simultaneous events: Christ coming, the dead saints rising, & the living saints taken up after that. Eccl 12:7 only speaks of the spirit of man returning to God, but not of the resurrection. Maybe, I've misunderstood you altogether so will not proceed with this.

    Then we have the debatable passages like Hebrews 6:4-6. I see the Hebrews writer speaking about a scenario of one who is saved then turns back to Legalism (i.e. to 'fall away' in this instance), having no chance to be 're-saved' because he would do despite to the Cross. Yet he says in v 9, that he is 'persuaded better things of them, things that accompany salvation'. So, looking at what the writer shows to us, it appears that he is not suggesting that there would be some there who could fall back into their old beliefs, but that to do so would mean no more grace for their salvation. So, why does he even suggest this matter? Likely, to show the finality & seriousness of Calvary's Work doesn't allow for hypocrisy & mistreatment, rather that all believers should 'work out their salvation with fear & trembling' (Philippians 2:12). Or, some 'believers' there may have appeared as genuine enjoying corporate blessings, but their return to that which kills, proves their insincerity & lack of a re-birth experience.
